Pitt-Duke Slated for Noon Kickoff at Acrisure Stadium on November 19



After back-to-back 8 p.m. kickoffs against Louisville and North Carolina, Pitt is about to begin a stretch of back-to-back noon kickoffs.

Pitt will travel to Charlottesville, Virginia for a matchup against Virginia this weekend, and next weekend ends matchup against Duke at Acrisure Stadium is officially set for a noon kickoff.

The game, which is set for noon on Nov. 19, will be broadcast on ACC Network.

Duke became just the second team in the ACC Coastal to earn bowl eligibility with a 38-31 win over Boston College last weekend. Duke has reached the six win  — already the highest win total since the 2018 season.

With wins over Temple, Northwestern, North Carolina A&T, Virginia, Miami and Boston College, Duke is 6-3 so far this season. With losses to Kansas, Georgia Tech and North Carolina.

Pitt is 16-9 all-time against Duke, dating back to an inaugural 52-7 win in Durham, North Carolina in 1929. Duke won five straight matchups between 1940-51, and it’s been a largely Pitt-controlled series since.

Pitt has won six games in a row against Duke and 10 of the last 11 meetings — the sole loss coming in a 51-48 double overtime loss at what-was-then Heinz Field in 2014.

Kenny Pickett threw for 416 yards and three touchdowns (helping fuel a 636-yard offensive explosion) to lead Pitt to a 54-29 win over Duke last season at Wallace Wade Stadium in Durham.

The ACC Network crew will be announced later this week.
